Why I Became an RMT

My first massage experience was an unforgettable one, sparking an interest that led me to become a Registered Massage Therapist.

My first massage experience was at a spa in Jasper, Alberta. When I got off the table, I felt extremely calm and blissful. I understood that massage could stimulate neurochemicals to produce a euphoric feeling, but I felt something more.

Afterwards, I realized my subconscious was saying something important: I want to be a Registered Massage Therapist.

Since becoming an RMT I have experienced both an increase in health, general contentment, and a more positive outlook on life.

We live in a fast-paced world. I am honoured to help people slow down momentarily, making them happier and present within their bodies. I hope to encourage my clients to live fuller lives – and to relax more!

This career is important, challenging, empowering, helpful, rewarding, and fun. Overall being an RMT is a role I am proud to be part of.

Since becoming an RMT I have expanded my training to include manual lymphatic drainage (MLD). Allowing myself to work with a different clientele opened doors for me in post-operative massage care for general and cosmetic surgeries.

I particularly enjoy lymphatic wellness massage, lymphedema management, and pre/post-op breast mastectomy care. Lymphatic care is a much-needed service and a fascinating path that has re-invigorated my interest in massage therapy and helping people.

I have also taken additional training in the Joana Medrado Method, Maderotherapy (wood therapy), and Structural Face Lifting technique.

Incorporating these skills into my practice has given opportunity to offer a broader range of services and bring much-needed wellness massage into everyone's lives.

Besides, variety is the spice of life, right?
